COVER FROM USA


This cover arrived from Michigan state, USA, sent by Mike. Different but nice stamps on the cover. Issued in April, 1990 a stamp celebrating Marianne Moore a Modernist American poet and writer. Also from 1990, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, one of five stamps in a series of five celebrating US coastal lighthouses.
On October 2, 2008, the US Postal Service issued a souvenir sheet of 10 commemorative stamps named Nature of America: Great Lakes Dunes. Great Lakes Dunes is the tenth stamp pane in the Nature of America’s educational series that features the beauty and complexity of major plant and animal communities in the United States. On the cover two bird 42-cent stamps from the souvenir sheet.
One of the most beautiful of the rugged shelled mollusks is the Frilled Dogwinkle, which is found along the Pacific coast from Alaska to California. Its tightly coiled shell is sculpted into many ridges and spines which gives the shell its frilled look. U.S Postal Service issued a 22 cent stamp in April,1985 featuring its shell.
